A special Rides of March Car & Bike Show benefiting Special Olympics Florida, Inc. will be held March 16 in the back parking lot of Santa Rosa Mall in Mary Esther from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with free admission.
Hosted by ASOTC, Omni Broadcasting, and Emerald Coast Connected, the Rides of March Car & Bike Show is more than just a display of incredible cars and motorcycles. A family-friendly extravaganza, the event offers a range of vendors offering various goods and services for you to explore, as well as tempting your palate with tasty treats and drinks offered by a variety of food trucks—all while everyone rocks to live music by Donnie Morgan and Autumn Poultry.
Maybe you want to showcase your car or motorcycle, participate as a vendor, or feature your food truck. That’s easy; you can register here.
However you wish to participate, the organizers intend for everyone to have a good time—all while helping Special Olympics Florida.
A 501(c)(3) charitable organization, Special Olympics Florida’s mission is to aid people with intellectual disabilities via sports training and competition in various Olympic-type sports. Doing so gives those who are disabled intellectually the means to strengthen their physical fitness and find pride in their competitions as they engage with everyone in the community as contributing members themselves.
Additional sponsors pitching in to help include Mills Heating and Air, Florida Power and Light, Eglin Federal Credit Union, Valparaiso Coca-Cola, and Law Tigers.
A staff writer for Emerald Coast Connected, June is (to quote her husband) “Like a fine old car driven beyond her warranty”. June, however, says she simply loves life and believes in finding the loving heartbeat of her community and enjoying the ride.
